Let’s talk about the impact of gambling on our community
Monday, December 7, 2020
2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
Gambling
Hosted by 3 Sides of the Coin and EACH

Problem Gambling is now recognised as an addiction like any other and gamblers need support to regain control. Did you know:

- 1 in 5 Victorians who gamble may be experiencing harm from gambling?
- Betting has become so normal that an 8 year old child watching AFL footy today will have never seen a game without gambling odds!
- During the first month of COVID-19 restrictions, online gambling increased by 67%.

Gambling affects us all! Gambling is a public health issue.

Hear real life stories – one woman’s journey into and recovery from gambling addiction; another woman harmed by her husband’s gambling. Followed by a Q&A with the two women.

This session will include information about gambling harm in Knox and the help services available.
